If you know anything about me, you know that I have a penchant for anything rose scented. I am very public about my love affair with rose water, and use it multiple times a day to keep my skin refreshed and hydrated. And, even though I am white and incredibly pale, I too strive for the J.Lo glow. And… because I don’t have darker skin that illuminates easily with highlighter, I have to rely on good ‘ol H20 and a religious skin care regime.
I collect rose scented things wherever I go. I came home from Greece this summer with some local rose oil, just picked up some solid rose perfume in Thailand, and purchased a roll-on rose scent in New Orleans a few months back. However, as much as I love these items I’ve found around the world, they are not the easiest to order for your rose-loving friend or relative.
Sooo, I decided to round up my favorite rose scented, and rose-colored beauty products. These all have my stamp of approval — I hope you find something for someone on your list, and perhaps even a little something for yourself. I’ve included my quick product reviews below too! xx
1. Essie Penny Talk, $8.50
This is my go-to color! I’ve seen it on a range of skin tones, and it looks unique and flattering on everyone. If they had this in a gel color, I would literally have it on 24/7.
2. Le Labo Rose Perfume Oil, $130
Le Labo is the scent God, and I am all about an oil. It stays on so much longer, and it’s easy to carry around in case you need a refresher.
3. Diptique Rose Oval, $45
I like taking my rose obsession a scent further by putting these rose scented ovals in my closet and lingerie drawers. A great gift that’s a tad more creative then a candle.
4. Mario Badescu Rose Water, $7
I have at least one bottle of this on me at any given time during the day. This is my secret skin weapon and it keeps me young, I swear! The perfect stocking stuffer for any age – I’ve even gotten my Dad to use this stuff!
5. Michael Kors Rose Gold Roll On Perfume, $22.50
Clearly, I have a thing for roll on scents. This is a more budget friendly option that still smells fantastic, and the bottle looks nice on a vanity.
6. Rosebud Perfume Co, $7
I discovered this lip balm in a tin when I went to my first Urban Outfitters store in Santa Monica in high school. I actually think this product is where my rose obsession started, and to this day, I still always have a tin by my nightstand.
7. Gypsy Rose Oil, $25
Keeping in line with my affinity for rose oil, this one by Gypsy Rose is ideal for nourishing your skin and hair! Rose oil > coconut oil, it doesn’t leave you nearly as sticky.
8. Yves Saint Laurent Le Nu, $36
The prettiest neutral blush shade for every skin tone.
9. Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumpling Lip Balm, $28
Sometimes you need a little lip plump, and this Dior balm does just the trick.
10. Poppy Austin Rose Water Facial Toner, $20
Get your face squeaky clean with this yummy scented toner that’s ideal for sensitive skin.
11. GVP Pro Rose Gold Glitter Hair Dryer, $40
For the girl who cares just as much about her makeup as she does her vanity!
12. Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Tint, $22
More than a balm but less than a lipstick, this Fresh Sugar lip tint gives your the perfect rosy pout.
13. Fresh Rose Face Mask, $62
This product is pure heaven, end of story. If you or someone you love likes an at-home face mask, this is for you!
14. Nars All About Eve, $35
A subtle rose gold eye is equal parts sexy and sweet.
15. Bbrowbar Pure Rose Water Gel, $42
Made with rose water gel, cucumber, plum seed oil and aloe vera, this gel is sure to revitalize your skin and restore it from traveling, dehydration, and sun exposer.
